February gets romantic with... Peter Elkas!

Our February concert is one we've been working on for a while and I figured since the artist let the cat out of the bag I better tell you about it!

We are really excited to offer a romantic Valentine's Day concert with the amazing Peter Elkas on Saturday, February 14.

Ron Sexsmith says Peter Elkas "has a wonderfully soulful voice and a great sense of melody that makes me want to write and sing better and try harder.” And who are we to disagree?

After more than a decade with Montreal band the Local Rabbits, Elkas struck out on his own in the early 2000s and hasn't looked back. With two albums, 2004's "Party of One" and 2007's "Wall of Fire", he's found a niche as a performer with stage presence equal to his songwriting, and a great show.

And we think that Peter's soulful vocals and songs will make for a Valentine's Day that nobody will forget anytime soon.

If you don't believe me, check out these videos:
